A few weeks ago, I gave a lecture to a wonderful group of people. One of the attendees chirped in and asked about my gift of sight. So, I discussed it for a moment. Then another person asked if I would pick someone, use my gift and read them. I asked for a volunteer and a young man happily raised his hand. I focused only on him and what came to me was his past. As I told him what I saw, tears filled his eyes and then I spoke to him about his life at present. Another person raised their hand and asked for a reading. Before I gave the next reading, I added the disclaimer that if people were going to want readings, they had to understand they would have no secrets from me and if they weren’t going to want certain things revealed in public, please do not raise their hand and volunteer. I then let them know that if they wanted to see me after the lecture, I would take a moment and speak with them. With this understanding in place, I proceeded and asked, “Who’s next?”
Instantaneously several hands flew up. One by one I read their lives, past, present or future. There was even someone who had a past life situation (“Spiritual Baggage” which is discussed in my book Universe 101: Learn Grow Evolve) that was interfering in their present life. After about 12 readings we were running out of time so I wrapped it up with Universe 101: Learn Grow Evolve teachings and then thanked everyone for attending. After the lecture, I was approached by many of the attendees and was graciously thanked for giving them my time and then asked more questions. In the days after, I was approached by many of the attendees families and friends who were all seeking knowledge about their lives or their loved ones, each of them telling me that the person who referred them had a profound experience with me. (Thank you for the compliments.)
For every reading I’ve done of either someone’s past, present, or future, there is a Universe 101: Learn Grow Evolve teaching. In all of the years I have been doing this, my gift of sight is not my favorite, as Michael Gigante would say “Super Power.” My favorite “Super Power” is my connection to the Universe. It is beautiful and filled with knowledge and always willing to share that knowledge. So, since the lecture I have been asked numerous questions about myself and will share those answers with all of you now.
Q. How long have you had these abilities?
A. Each of them showed up at a different age in my life. The Spirit Talking started around five or six. My Mom would notice me talking to a spirit and yell at me to stop because she was afraid that if I spoke to them, they would feel welcome in the house and decide to stay. The gift of sight around twelve years old (the story is in my book Universe 101: Learn Grow Evolve). My grandfather noticed my connection to the Universe when I was around nine or ten years old. The energy moving was developed in my late 20s.
Q. How would you describe what you are capable of?
A. I am always humble about the gifts I have been given. The people closest to me say I’m “too humble.” While going through my own Evolution, I struggled with my gifts because I have endured a great deal of hateful criticism (in other people’s eyes I was strange or odd, a freak, or a liar “because no one can do that”) and I was shunned or ridiculed. Because of this, when my gifts first revealed themselves I thought the gifts were a “curse.” And then, as I continued trying to understand them, they became a “gift/curse.” I continued to try and understand and accept them and they finally became a “gift” and now they are the Michael Gigante coined phrase “Super Powers.” I have learned, grown, and evolved in my understanding of my abilities so now they are what is “normal” to me.
Q. How hard is it to be you?
A. Sometimes I ask myself the same question and if you ask my adopted Brother he will tell you he is really glad he’s not me. I have a lot of pressure on me because the people who do come to me for help have expectations and part of what I do is work to get them to understand themselves, their circumstance and how to work through it in a healthy way. Because of my connection to the Universe, I have understandings that a lot of people don’t have and it is my responsibility to get it across with effectual communication. What I have learned is everyone communicates differently and I have to understand their method of communication to give them the tools to work through tough situations and come out a happier, healthier, more solid self.
Q. Is your Universal Connection like the movie “The Matrix?”
A. That’s funny because that is how I describe it to people who have seen that movie. I really am humbled to the Universe and its vast knowledge. When I learn the entire truth of a subject, I say “Ah Hah!” Learning has always been important to me and I grab every piece of knowledge with understanding and acceptance and then I apply the knowledge gained.
Q. How strong are your psychic abilities?
A. For me being a psychic is different than being a seer. To me a psychic is someone who can read thoughts. So based on that, it gets pretty intense sometimes. It’s hard for me to go to any extremely crowded events. I have to prepare myself before I go or I am bombarded and it becomes deafening.
Q. Can you teach how to heal/move energy?
A. There are a lot of rules involved so I feel people need to be taught to respect and follow the rules first. With energy moving, I have a few students already. I teach certain aspects to alleviate minor annoyances. There are a lot of different methods of healing such as acupuncture, acupressure, Tui Na, Reiki healing, etc. which I don’t teach. I earned my certification in Tui Na in 2001 and I believe it is a wonderful tool for healing.
Q. Why did you decide to write your book Universe 101: Learn Grow Evolve?
A. I have been assisting people for years get on their healing path, Life Coaching and/or guiding them on a spiritual path in their life. The Universe has given me keys and my book was written to help people on their Learn Grow Evolve path whether it is used for understanding and finding themselves, building and/or maintaining healthy relationships, career, loving themselves, understanding Universal Responsibility and many other topics people need assistance with. Universe 101: Learn Grow Evolve is not a spiritual book to change a person’s religion or spirituality and it’s not all about “Super Powers.” It is a beautiful message that the Universe wants all beings on the planet to be their happiest, healthiest, most successful self and it is a guide to assist them with this. It is my way of helping more people than just one at a time which is what I have been doing because I am only one person. The Universe and all of my friends said it was time to spread a good message, a message that works. That’s it for now. I hope all of my answers are helpful in your understanding of me and the message I am trying to convey of being the happiest, healthiest, most successful person you can be. Remember, understanding is one of the universal keys to working through tough situations in your life in a healthy, effective way. I look forward to continuing to write my blogs so if you have questions send them to me and I will do my best to answer them.
